Deathmatch coming to 'Overwatch' Arcade Soon, Live Now On PTR

Deathmatch coming to 'Overwatch' Arcade Soon, Live Now On PTR

In these modes, there are no objectives to capture and no payloads to push.

Now available in Overwatch's Public Test Region - which is exclusive to the Windows PC version of the game - are two new kills-only modes, Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. Games like COD require 75 or 100 kills in order to win a game of Team Deathmatch and they're played on maps that are much smaller than that of Overwatch. The new deathmatch modes will also include a brand-new map important to Widowmaker's in-game history.

Team Deathmatch runs the same rules with one change: if a player dies and they are resurrected, the point awarded for their kill is immediately revoked.

For now, you can entertain yourself with the Overwatch Summer Games event, in which you can earn brand new skins for each of the characters. Both modes will exist in Overwatch's Arcade.

Also, important heads-up for loot seekers: so long as you score in the top half of players (top four, in the case of free-for-all), you'll get a "win" credit toward your Arcade loot boxes.

Deathmatch is a free-for-all in which players must, in the grand tradition of the mode, murder each other over and over until a specific kill target is reached.

Game director Jeff Kaplan said that some of the Hybrid, Escort, and Assault maps have been slightly modified to better fit the new modes. Mechanically it'll have jump pads and tight corridors, while narratively you'll get hints about Widowmaker's background. Kaplan didn't go into details on what customization options will be available but did mention the Blizzard team behind Overwatch wants to expand the number of options to match the deathmatch modes so players can come up with their own variants.

That map has a story behind it.
